Motor Vehicle Wholesaling in Australia

industry chart

No State and Territory breakdown for the distribution of Motor Vehicle Wholesaling enterprises in Australia.

Like most industries, Motor Vehicle Wholesaling revenue and employment growth suffered in the immediate aftermath of the global financial crisis, and is only now beginning to stabilise after a few bumpy years. It is expected, however, that as passenger motor vehicle production in Australia begins to wind-down towards 2017, that motor vehicle wholesalers and retailers will experience positive growth.

Farm and Construction Machinery Wholesaling in Australia

industry chart2

The industry is somewhat stable for the moment but is often vulnerable to external factors such as droughts and other natural disasters.

The Farm and Construction machinery wholesale industry in Australia is heavily influenced by both economic and climatic factors. Growth in the industry was in decline in 2005 in the midst of a severe drought that affected many parts of the country. Growth then returned to positive as climatic conditions improved and farmers invested in equipment they had put off purchasing previously. This period of growth was then followed by the Global Financial Crisis that hit more or less the whole country, and it was only sales to the mining sector that kept revenue and employment growth in the positive.

Automotive Industry in Australia

industry pie chart

Based on IBISWorld data, the Australian automotive industry is comprised of the following industry components:

The Australian automotive industry is going through a period of unprecedented change culminating in the closure of car manufacturers Toyota, Holden and Ford, in Australia in 2017. The impact of these closures will mean an abrupt decline in the forecast of employment and revenue growth between 2016 and 2018. These closures will have the biggest impact on businesses involved in manufacturing, whether it be the vehicles themselves, or parts for vehicles. However, the industry will continue to adapt and evolve. Businesses involved in wholesale and retail will benefit from greater access to imported vehicles and parts. There is already evidence that new car sales are on the rise driven by a combination of low interest rates and Government incentives. And as long as there are more vehicles on the road there will be a need for servicing and repair. So it is forecast that the Australian automotive industry as a whole will return to a period of positive growth sometime after 2018.
